Kentucky is holding over $244 million in unclaimed assets. They run a very aggressive campaign to return unclaimed funds to their rightful owners. They print periodic ads in newspapers, and conduct community outreach programs. At the Cliften Center Councilmember Tina Ward-Pugh and her volunteers made hundreds of phone calls, which resulted in $147,000 given back to property owners. $11.3 million was returned to 106,000 accounts in 2009. They offer website with a searchable database.
